IET announces partnership with J-STAGE to index 53 Japanese journals in Inspec

The partnership brings 53 journals from across Inspec’s coverage areas spanning: mechanical and production engineering; computers and control; electrical engineering and electronics; and physics. The range of titles reflects Inspec’s commitment to meeting multidisciplinary research needs, representing the publication output from top Japanese societies, associations and institutes.

The addition of more than four dozen journals from J-STAGE will expand the amount of Japanese research that is indexed in Inspec. Katharine Hancox, Content Development Manager for Inspec, said: “This co-operation with J-STAGE is significant in exposing quality Japanese research to the Inspec user base worldwide.”

Developed and managed by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), one of the core institutions responsible for the implementation of science and technology policy in Japan, J-STAGE is an electronic journal platform for science and technology information. J-STAGE aims to accelerate the speed of communication and ensure the internationalisation of the science and technology information published in Japan.

IET shares the commitment of JST and J-STAGE to support Open Science and the journals selected for indexing include a number of Open Access titles.

The J-STAGE journals will join over 4,500 international journals in Inspec, selected for their specific relevance to the fields of engineering and science. As part of the Inspec database, the journals’ content will be discoverable to a global audience of research universities, corporate research teams, governments and patent offices.
